Tuesday was my birthday. I am still not in possession of the largest appetite in the world so I skipped the traditional cake and ice cream Tuesday night.
But my husband is taking his mother out for Mother’s Day this weekend and I figured, since we will have family visiting from out of town, I might as well make myself the cake I would have made on Tuesday. Since there will be people to share it with.
Though once I tried this cake I was a little less sold on the sharing idea. It is delicious! Fudgey, rich, moist, chocolatey and spiced heaven on a fork. The mascarpone whipped cream topping is completely optional; the cake would be fantastic with just some powdered sugar dusted on top, but I really enjoyed the clean cool sweet of the topping with the chocolatey spice of the cake.
